Default Newish Innova Champ Stamp Art

Admittedly trivial...but don't like it.
Looks poorly balanced and somewhat feminine font style to me. I like any of the older ones better.
Won't keep me from buying or trying a disc...but is an odd change imo.

Think there were earlier posts or threads about this.
Did cursory search, nothing this specific


I fully realize these don't change the flight, can be wiped off etc etc...
I have already wiped my roc3s and terns

I tried hard to like the design but it ain't happening.

It's just a stamp, don't really care either way.

duly noted

Just went from something classy and simple to "clip art" and cheesey to me

I know it hasn't been super well received, but I don't mind it so much. It's better than both Discmania and Discraft's circle stamp. I would prefer the outer "circle" and the word "Champion" be removed, but it could be worse.

It wasn't very easy to find, but here's the original thread.

Also, I can understand how more serious players may not like it. For the most part, we like more basic, simple stamps.

In my head, I can rationalize why that is, but I can't find the words to explain it well.

For the casual players though, these stamps will be more attractive and might draw them in better. That is likely the motivation for the change.

It's a damn shame too, because their DX stamps are awesome like the old Viper, Phoenix, Roc, Pirhana, Cobra etc. We want these on champ plastic. I may never wipe a stock stamp again!

I really don't care, however I do like it better than the silly looking DX stamps.
